The SS United States

The SS United States was built in 1952 and held various records including the fastest ocean liner to cross the Atlantic in either direction.  The ship was in service for seventeen solid years. Yet since 1996 she has been docked, abandoned, on Pier 82 in Philadelphia.  Take a look at this majestic ship (shot by Chris DeAntonio), surely too iconic to allow to rust away out of sight and out of mind?
